Professor Craig Mahoney, Principal & Vice-Chancellor, UWS said: “At UWS we promote a vision for sport and physical activity which everyone can be a part of, and which contributes to our organisational identity and culture to positively impact our students’ experience.
“Offering students a free UWS gym membership highlights that we are investing in our student body, helping them to excel and be the best versions of themselves. Physical activity instils invaluable skills such as resilience, confidence and collaboration and these skills are transferable beyond university and into the world of work.
“We are so pleased that we are able to roll out this sector-leading initiative to provide our students with free access to our gyms. The widely-reported benefits of physical activity including increased confidence, social skills, employability and attainment will ensure students at UWS make the most of their time at university and flourish as individuals.”
